Whether you’re looking for beautiful storage baskets that can go on display or help with organising your establishment, we’re here to show you a superb selection of storage solution options that are perfect for a restaurant or pub environment.
Read on to discover the best essential storage solutions for pubs and restaurants…
Why are storage solutions essential for pub and restaurant settings?
It’s no secret that restaurant and pub atmospheres can get pretty busy, making it easier than ever for organisation practices to go out the window.
Here are several reasons why storage solutions are essential for your restaurant or pub:
- Aesthetic value - high-quality features are a great yet subtle way of adding a touch of luxury to your bar or restaurant, as it shows attention to detail.
- Organisation - keeping essential items stored away within a dedicated space will make the day to day running of the business much easier.
- Decluttering - by storing away what you need, you’ll be able to identify items that you no longer use, which can then be thrown away.
- Space-saving - storage solutions will free up the space around your restaurant or pub, providing you with a place to store away what you need safely and securely.
Perfect for back of house use
Whether it’s for administrative purposes or a restaurant storeroom - there’s no reason as to why any part of your establishment can’t be organised in style.
Plus, when you’re investing in beautiful storage solutions that are made from premium quality materials (such as ours!), you can rest assured knowing that they will be built to withstand rigorous use, which is essential for back of house.
Generally speaking, for back of house use (depending on the room), you won’t need to worry about anything appearing too bulky as you would in customer-facing spaces.
Large storage solutions for back of house can be used however you see fit. For example, some may find them useful for organising soft furnishing reserves (e.g. blankets for customers, cushions for seating arrangements), storing away spare uniforms and so on.
Of course, every restaurant or pub layout will be different. So, for a little inspiration,
here are several useful purposes and areas to consider using beautiful storage baskets for back of house:
- Staff rooms/ employee areas.
- Kitchen organisers.
- Cutlery holders.
- The pass (to place order notes for the kitchen).
- Restaurant storerooms.
- Food storerooms.
- Toiletry holders.
- Bar stock rooms.
- Staff cupboards.
Milton Natural Rattan Storage Baskets
Perfect for restaurant offices and storerooms alike, we have the Milton Natural Rattan Storage Baskets.
This set consists of three baskets in total, providing restaurants and bars with a durable and useful storage solution option that’ll stand the test of time - even with rigorous use.
All baskets within this set feature inset handles to provide ease of use, even if they are placed in hard to reach areas.
The baskets are made from ethically sourced sustainable Water Hyacinth, ensuring unparalleled quality as well as adding a stylish touch to any room they feature in.

Wicker Bronze Hamper
Introducing the Wicker Bronze Hamper, the perfect storage option for those who are looking for large storage solutions.
A very reliable option for storerooms, staff rooms and office spaces, the Wicker Bronze Hamper contains useful features that’ll make storing away and retrieving items within this storage solution easy and hassle-free. This includes inset handles as well as a fully hinged lid.
If you’re interested in large solutions that are durable and built to last, this is a great option for you. Please note that this storage hamper is also available in a contemporary grey shade.
Perfect for front of house use
If you were to ask your front of house staff whether they would benefit from having access to more storage solutions, the answer would likely be yes!
This is because, in the hustle and bustle of a restaurant or pub environment, it’s easy to misplace important bits and pieces (e.g. printed guest lists, reservation table signs, stationery, stamps, notepads) that are required to do the job as efficiently as possible.
You’ll likely want any storage solutions on display to customers to be visually appealing and align with the overall aesthetic of the establishment.
For front of house, here are several useful purposes and areas to consider using beautiful storage baskets:
- Waiter stations.
- Restaurant cloakrooms.
- Table caddies.
- Table tidies.
- Stock items that are on display (e.g. display nibbles that are available to purchase).
- Condiment holders.
- Decorative displays (e.g. adding a log basket to feature next to a fireplace or fire display).
- Table displays.
- Toiletry holders for customer-facing bathrooms.
- Staff cupboards.
We’ve put together a few storage solution options that are too beautiful to not be on display, perfect for adding a touch of luxury to your front of house area.
Set of 4 Kubu Storage Baskets
Using our Set of 4 Kubu Storage Baskets within your restaurant or pub environment is a sure way to add a touch of sophistication to your customer-facing spaces, ideal for keeping clusters of items together in one place.

Log baskets for restaurant or pub fire features
We understand that not every establishment will have a fireplace, however, if you do have this type of cosy feature within your pub or restaurant setting - a premium quality log basket would make for the perfect finishing touch.
See below for a couple of examples of superb log basket options that would look great in your restaurant or pub setting.
Kubu Rattan Rectangle Log Basket with Wheels
A perfect storage solution for displaying firewood within a restaurant or pub setting, we have the Kubu Rattan Rectangle Log Basket With Wheels.
Our Kubu Rattan Rectangle Log Basket With Wheels will take all the strain out of transporting firewood to and from your establishment’s fire feature, thanks to the use of premium quality castor wheels.
Alternatively, should you find it easier to lift the basket, you’ll also have the option to do so thanks to the beautiful rope handles, positioned on either side of the log basket.
This beautiful option is available in either a size large or extra-large, however, it’s worth mentioning that the Kubu Rattan Rectangle Log Basket With Wheels can store a generous amount of firewood - no matter which size option you go for.
